If so, I would like to tell you this: Absolutely go for it! January is the coldest month of the year in most european countries and in N-Africa. However, speaking from my own personal experience I can tell you that visiting Morocco in January or during winter in general is absolutely perfect for so many reasons.
Here in this post I will share with you my personal experience and few things that are good to know before your trip. Here is a small chart showing average temperature in Morocco. The yellow column stands for the average temperature during day and the green one is the average low during night.
In my experience it often got a lot warmer during the days.
Also, keep in mind that the weather can vary a lot between different parts of Morocco. It is a very large country and the temperature can be completely different in Marrakech in the centre compared to Essaouria on the coast, the Sahara desert in the South-East or the other larger cities in the North.
We chose to travel in January because that is the coldest month in Iceland — But as soon as you delay your trip until February, it will be significantly warmer.
However, between 19pmam it is significantly colder and can get down to a few degrees on the Celsius scale. So, be prepared to wear shorts and t-shirts in the day — But a warm jacket is necessary if you plan on spending some time outside in the evenings!
The January night temperature surprised me so I bought this jacket on my 2nd. Therefore, you want to pack your swimsuit, shorts, t-shirts and overall summer gear — But also jeans, warm sweaters etc AND a warm jacket!
However, in general shorts are not too short and shoulders should be covered. Today, Morocco is super tourist friendly and has become much more open for different cultures.
Therefore you might well see men or women showing their legs or shoulders in Morocco without having any problems. Meaning there are far less tourists around, even though the medina in Marrakech is always packed with people! We experienced this especially when we travelled outside of the largest cities — In smaller towns — and specially on our 4 day desert tour we were almost always the only travellers in the area!
You can read about my 4 day desert tour to Erg Chebbi here. This can apply for flights, hotels and in restaurant and shop prices. The hotel prices are the first sign and there it can vary significantly.
In my experience, you can usually go a lot lower. I have got to know this with shoes, carpets, ceramic, oils and literally every product bought in the souks.Yahoo Lifestyle is your source for style, beauty, and wellness, including health, inspiring stories, and the latest fashion trends.
